Israel’s gridlock continues as Gantz attempts to form government

“Netanyahu is about to be indicted on allegations of severe crimes on the one hand, but on the other hand he is still very popular among his political base and is committed to holding on to his power,” Plesner says. “Without the Netanyahu factor, it’s quite clear we would have seen today a functioning government.”

According to a recent IDI poll, a majority of Israelis want a unity government between Likud and Blue and White. This is what Gantz and Netanyahu both claim to be working toward, yet their shared end does not reflect shared means.

…A majority of Israelis believe Netanyahu should resign. “This is obviously a message accepted by a broad majority of Israelis, but not yet internalized by the political system,” Plesner says.
